Google Play is a fucking nightmare to upload to. Has anyone put their book up there for sale? Is it worth the hour and a half I spent uploading spreadsheets etc?

Google Play can be a nightmare in general. They're notorious for discounting titles willy-nilly, which Amazon will often price match. That can seriously cut into your revenue.

I don't publish there.

Your covers are awesome, btw.

Seconded. I uploaded 3 books there, and 3 months later they were still in the processing phase. I requested deletion, and they were removed within 12 hours. Very, strange.

Amazon and Smashwords are easier and more efficient, in my humble opinion.
